Pill Drop Box
Safely Dispose of Old Medicine
Our pill drop box is located in the Highlands Police Department Front Office and is accessible, Monday through Saturday 8am-6pm. You can drop off your expired or unused prescription pills no questions asked. Please only bring in capsules or pills. We can NOT accept needles, epi-pens, liquids, drops, ointments, or non-prescription medication. You may keep the pills or capsules in original pill bottles or dump all into a Ziploc bag to turn in. All medication taken in is burned at an off-site facility.
You can dispose of needles by putting them in a Sharps Container or a hard bottle with a lid and taking them to the County Landfill or a County Disposal Center and giving the container to the attendant on duty.
The chief aims of a Neighborhood Watch program are to report suspicious activity, reduce crime, and increase neighborhood safety. While beginning a Neighborhood Watch Program is not a guarantee of crime reduction, studies show that neighborhoods will experience an average of a 16-percent crime reduction under the protection of a Neighborhood Watch program.
The following links provide information and materials for establishing a Neighborhood Watch Program in your neighborhood. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact the department.
